Pagami Creek Fire BWCAW Minnesota

I found another incredible satellite shot of the fire, this one from NASA. This was from last week when the fire was really blazing. The amount of smoke was huge. Yesterday the fire didn't grow despite the winds up to 25mph gusting. Today, Sunday there is rain in the area and that will aid the firefighters. There are 500 of them working on this fire. Conditions are so dry in the area that campfires are not allowed of course. The Arrowhead region of Minnesota is in drought.
